NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – New Mexicans are speaking out after CNN is accused of being racist toward Native Americans for labeling them as “something else” in a poll about the race for president.

Mescalero Apache Tribal President Gabe Aguilar said he considers the “something else” labels to be an insult.

“I don’t want to be something else. I want to be Native American,” he explained.
